Publisher's Summary

When Sherlock and Amyus Crowe, his American tutor, visit Sherlock’s brother, Mycroft, in London, what they find shocks both of them to the core: a locked room, a dead body, and Mycroft holding a knife. The police are convinced Mycroft is a vicious murderer, but Sherlock is just as convinced he is innocent.
Threatened with the gallows, Mycroft needs Sherlock to save him. The search for the truth necessitates an incredible journey, from a railway station for the dead in London all the way to the frozen city of Moscow - where Sherlock is entangled in a world of secrets and danger.
In Andrew Lane's Black Ice, the unstoppable teenage sleuth undertakes his third fantastic adventure, as one deadly puzzle leads only to another.
Sherlock Holmes: Think you know him? Think again.

Terrible narrator makes a bad story worse

The plot in this tedious story of the young Sherlock Holmes is so absurd it is laughable! The pompous, plodding narrator makes the story drag even more. The action is based entirely on a series of escapes from unbelievable predicaments by the ever clever young Mr. Holmes. And then there is the paranoid theme, reminiscent of Moriarty, this time in the form of a secretive society planning to take over the world. Young readers would be advised to read or listen to the original Conan Doyle stories instead of this pastiche.

Sherlock's violin

Third in Lane's "Young Sherlock" series, this clever tale further develops the budding sleuth's character and eccentricities. In particular we learn how and from where Sherlock gets his violin. But Sherlock's going to have to put on some muscle if he's going to survive many more such "physical" adventures.
